January 18, 2018-- Emerson announced a SolaHD encapsulated transformer developed to provide the capacity required for larger loads in a single floor-mounted unit. The transformers comply with the latest NEC requirements for harsh and hazardous industrial locations, making them ideal for service in petrochemical facilities, wastewater treatment centers, and power generation plants.
Emerson's SolaHD Floor Mount Automation Transformers feature an enclosure encapsulated with electrical grade silica and epoxy that protects its electronics from dust, metal particles and moisture, while providing extra shock and vibration resistance. The transformers meet Class I, Division 2/Class I, Zone 2 ratings, 3rd party certification (cULus), and feature an expanded kVA range up to 150 kVA to provide additional opportunities for engineers in industrial and hazardous locations. New certifications and configurations mean the transformer acts as a single solution for multiple NEMA applications.
One of the features of SolaHD Floor Mount Automation Transformers is a newly designed enclosure featuring removable, field-replaceable gland plates for conduit entry, along with floor mounting brackets. An improved cover delivers hose and wash down capabilities to ensure sanitation procedures are safely performed in areas such as food and beverage production. Optional stainless steel enclosures provide full NEMA 4X compliance where required.
Emerson manufactures SolaHD Floor Mount Automation Transformers in the USA, decreasing lead-times and improving availability for critical projects. In addition to the standard selection, custom transformer versions are available.
